R.I.P, Mr. Humphries.
You made me smile and straight out guffaw...you and the rest of the staff at Grace Brothers.
Timeless and inimitable.
Seeing Mr. Lucas, Mr. Rumbold and Mr. Peacock on Richard and Judy today, remembering you, was a happy and sad moment...they've all grown so old...but they're still the way they were in my mind, frozen...in all the reruns that I've savoured.
An old favorite, close to the heart. Always.
Heard about the passing away of a gentleman I have met only once in my life, about 15 years ago but we'd bonded truly. he made lunch and what a lunch. he would joke that if we met after ages, I might not recognize him if we passed each other on the street, for he would be so old...a genuinely warm and friendly human being. And his wife and the rest of the extended family. felt like part of their family without any of the stupid lineage thing...
Sepia happy memories, now.
